My heart burst open...

"If you're listening, if you're awake to the poignant beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold ever more wonders."
~ Andrew Harvey

I miss this sweet baby!
I read this quote yesterday as I sat in a class at the Utah Foster Care Foundation in SL County.
I thought of Ashanti...and I realized there are so many things that make me think of her. She has impacted my life in a way no one else could!
I am doing better...but I really miss her!
The nice thing....hope has regained my heart.
I love Hope!

Or course you can use that quote!!! I love it too! I didn't get to the festival...wanted to but my little fur baby needed me and then I ended up in the dentist office with what I thought was a really bad cavity...turns out my nerve in my tooth is dying...so at somepoint when I can't stand it anymore they will do a root canal. Fun hu!

Can't wait to see your presentation at the conference...hope our presentations aren't at the same day and hour. :)

What a wonderful quote-especially as it applies to foster care!
